Default 29 trunk question

I'm in the process of fitting a deck lid onto a 1929 model A Coupe. The deck lid appears to be original. The deck lid has a crown in it going from drivers to passenger side. Is this normal? The trunk won't open because the deck lid is crowned and the panel in front of it is flat. I don't know if the deck lid is supposed to be flat or the panel in front of it is supposed to be crowned.
Thanks for the help.

I have a 28 special coupe which has an identical trunk lid and panel above the lid as a 29 coupe. I just checked my trunk and there is a crown on both the trunk lid and the panel above the lid. Do you have an original panel above the lid and are sure the lid is original? Both should have a decent crown and match each other, I would estimate the crown to be about a 3/8" in the middle.

Thanks Rusty, not sure about the originality of the above the deck lid panel. I believe it is, the panel was very rusted out. The rain gutters have been replaced though and that may have changed/removed the crown in the panel. I'll have to do some metal work and figure out how to get the crown back in the panel. Thanks again.

Pluck, I have already been using your guide, thanks.
